#Noah The Movie THUMBS WAY DOWN; here's why...
3-30-14, Frank Marzullo Jr -- A summary of the new film 'Noah;'
the character of this 'Noah' is not the one of the Bible. There's:
- - magic
- - murder
- - environment is damaged ... thus the flood
Lamech, Noah's father, serves as a type of Shaman [warlock/witchcraft?] healing one of Noah's daughters-in-law who cannot bear children; using his mystical powers she bears children.
Noah concludes that people do not deserve to survive because of what they've done to the environment and to animals. Noah deduces that God's [they don't use the name 'GOD' however] only reason for his family on the ark is to shepherd the animals to safety, and if mankind disappears; then it would be a better world.
One of the women on the ark is pregnant, and Noah decides that if it is a boy, it can live, but if it is a girl, he must kill it. The woman gives birth to twin girls, and Noah gets all the way up to killing not one but two female infants, after killing evil meat-eating Akkad. But in the end, he fails. He says "to himself, to the Creator," "I can't. I can't do it. I am sorry. I am so sorry."
Well, it's worse than I expected.
